We booked the Cobblers barn as a group of 8, consisting of 5 adults, 1 teenager, 2 under 6 years olds and our dogs. As a family we have stayed in several holiday cottages but we have to say this was by far the best!!!!! We were welcomed by a smiling Karen and shown around the property and given all the information we needed, she had also left us some basics, chocolates and fresh bread baking!!! what a lovely surprise!
the cottage is more than well equipped, nothing is lacking, every utensil you could need is in the kitchen along with a massive range of dishes, pots and pans! previous visits to other cottages have always ended up in a visit to a shop to get some cooking utensil but not at the cobblers barn!
the barn is well designed, beautifully laid out, clean, comfortable, welcoming and has lovely decor. The beds are very comfortable, bathrooms are luxurious and the underfloor heating throughout kept us all warm and cozy in the snow! The wood burning stove was great and we often sat the kids in front of it after they had been in the hot tub!!
The hot tub tops it off, sitting there bubbling away looking at the hills and listening to the sheep baaaaa! was just lovely!
there is plenty to do in the local area and a visit to the crown gastro pub is a must!
we used the chef service and had an afternoon tea served to us in the cottage, this is a great idea and the food was wonderful!!!
there is nothing we could fault, Alistair and Karen have it spot on. We cant wait to return as no other cottage would compare now!!!
